Tonight we went out to dinner and I fear I am the in the minority .
I could not help but notice the friends and families dining together, actually sitting together with no conversation, except when they were texting or talking on their cell phones.
O.K. I understand we are all sooooo busy, but really ??? too busy to enjoy being present with your family or friends????
We recently had dinner with our friends, one of whom is a pediatric surgeon, even on call, he quietly leaves the table and goes in another room to talk and comes back to join us, and the conversation is right back to important stuff~food as Eric is a fabulous cook, and I'm sure would much rather talk about food than medicine!
I know I might be somewhat alone but I don't think so though, I feel we owe it to ourselves, our family and friends ,our health to simply shut the phone off, take a break and be present..... Enjoy.... Breathe.... Tuck your day away.....
